It is with great sadness that the PEUGEOT brand learns the death of Mr. Gérard Welter.

Brilliant self-taught and passionate about motorsport, he joined PEUGEOT at the age of 18,

and achieved an exemplary career within the brand.

Creator of the PEUGEOT 205 and its sporty versions, the legendary Peugeot 205 T16 and Peugeot 205 GTi, he became Director of the Peugeot Design Center from 1998 to 2007.

He was the instigator of many concept cars designed to promote the brand image Proxima, Oxia, Asphalte, Touareg, RC Pique and RC Carreau, Féline, 907.... He will remain an emblematic figure of the “Lion Brand”.

His passion, charisma and ability to bring people together still inspire and motivate our designers today.

The PEUGEOT brand, on behalf of its employees and PSA Group, shares its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Gérard Welter.
